Senior Year Quarter 1 Recap

The first quarter of my senior year is officially behind me and boy oh boy was it a whirlwind of excitement. A lot happened in the first nine weeks of the school year & today I'm going to recapping a few things that took place during the first quarter. 


On the first day of school I wore the most comfortable pair of light wash jeans, my favorite pair of brown leather sandals & this super soft and flowy tank top. 


Being my senior year I went to every Friday night football I could because I know that I'm going to miss cheering in the student section next year. I always love dressing for the themes every week and participating in the halftime stunts performed by our student section. The photos above were taken with my friends Lizzie & Emily at the white-out game & the neon game. During the neon game our student section did a powder toss where we all tossed blue powder into the air and as a result, we're covered in blue for the next three days!


I talked about it more in yesterdays post but I attended my senior homecoming in early October. My mom snapped this photo of me and my puppy, Callie, before I left to head over to my friends house for pictures & it just might be my favorite candid photo she's ever taken of me!


Sunday's were typically the only day of the week that I didn't have any team golf practices or tournaments so I took advantage of my days off to grab brunch with friends before I would head home to finish my homework. Now that golf season is over, I'm hoping to be able to find some new brunch spots around town with my friends. 

 
Senior year has meant a lot of iced coffee runs in order to make sure I have energy to finish homework & to complete all my college applications on time. On days when I don't have time to stop and pick up and iced coffee you can bet I've had made a cup of coffee using my favorite Starbucks K-Cups for our Keurig. 

How has your school year been so far?

Where I've Been

Boy oh boy has life been crazy recently. With the chaos of senior year, golf season & college applications I've had a hard time finding time to sit down, let alone sit down and write a blog post. It's never my intention to put the blog on the back burner for this long but sometimes life happens and you just have to live with it. 

My senior golf season officially ended yesterday which as sad it is to know that I am done with high school sports, I'm excited to be back to my regular blogging routine. My senior golf season was UNBELIEVABLE. My team and I performed extremely well, winning our conference championship and making it the state tournament for the first time in seven years! I served as one of the Varsity team captains this year and loved being able to mentor the younger girls throughout the season. My teammates and I grew extremely close during season and I know that we will continue to grow closer even out of season. 

Rewind back to the summer where I spent a few days traveling down to South Carolina to look at several colleges. At the every beginning of the summer my mom and I traveled down and looked at a bunch of schools but one school that really stood out to me was Clemson University. I had never even thought to consider Clemson but the moment I stepped on the campus I fell in love. Although Clemson isn't a very big town, it still had the feel I was looking for as well as the southern charm I wanted. My dad and I went back to Clemson in July for an official visit to the school where I fell even more in love with the school. Needless to say Clemson was the first application I submitted and I am anxiously waiting for (hopefully!) an acceptance letter! 



Fast forward back to October where I attended my final homecoming dance. I hadn't gone to a dance since my freshman year homecoming but I'm so happy that my friends convinced me to go. I went with a group of really good friends & had such a good time! At the dance I was able to find two of my teammates, Lizzie & Emily, and we took a picture that easily is my favorite picture of the night. 


I wore a simple black lace dress and a pair of black heels and both were so comfortable and I got lots of compliments on both! 


Now that all of my college applications are in I feel like I can finally breathe and relax a little bit. I actually just received my first acceptance letter yesterday! I'm going to wait until I've heard back from all my schools before announcing where I applied & where I'll be attending! :)
